Patents & Trademarks

Protecting your patents and trademarks means protecting your profitability and your company's image and identity. While trademark registration is not required in North Dakota, a trademark may be registered with the Secretary of State to establish exclusive right to the trademark in North Dakota. We can help you research current patents and trademarks, search the Patent and Trademark Depository, and register a new trademark with the State of North Dakota.

The United States Commissioner of Patents & Trademarks registers patents.

The Center for Innovation offers comprehensive, hands-on assistance to technology entrepreneurs, innovators, and manufacturers interested in starting new ventures, commercializing new products, and licensing new technologies. They can assist with patent and trademark searches through the Patent and Trademark Depository and the Chester Fritz Library.
